Tingdene Boats Sales and Marinas

Tingdene will debut at the new BoatLife Live boat show at the NEC Brimingham on the 17th - 20th February with a boat to suit every taste and purpose from Cranchi, Viking Cruisers, Viking Canal Boats, Banks Martin and Dolfor.


Cranchi Endurance 30

Providing pedigree offshore performance but with copious and comfortable accommodation for river and inland cruising too, they'll be showing the Endurance 30 as the representative from the Italian Cranchi range.

The bow area is easily accessibe via well protected walkways. The steering position is amidships for easy visibility all around. She is the perfect boat for 4 people to sleep or up to 10 to entertain on with two large lounging areas. The cabin features full headroom and is fitted with a double berth aft to complete the accommodation.

Best of all, the Cranchi Endurance 30 is in stock and ready to go..!


Viking Canal Boats 70 x 12 06

If your ambitions lie more towards a traditional form of canal and river cruising, or even living aboard, then they will have the Viking Canal Boats 70 x 12 06 wide beam. This will quite possibly be the largest vessel you'll be able to view at BoatLife Live..!

Viking Canal Boats specialise in the construction of steel narrowboats and widebeam boats to customers' bespoke preferences and at very high quality.

The example they will be showing has a two-cabin layout, wet room, large saloon and spacious galley. It's specified with a full range of galley equipment including a dishwasher, flatscreen TV, double sofe bed and armchair in the lounge and bunk beds in the second cabin - perfect for children.

Powered by a 75hp diesel engine, with manoeuvrabiity assisted by a bow thruster and with electrical needs catered for by a high quality Victron system, the show boat is ready either for your summer cruising adventures or an exciting lifestyle change to live on the water.

As a bonus, the 70 x 12 06's dimensions allow for exemption from VAT should it be purchased as a sole place of residence.


Viking 24

Similary named but from the company that is synonymous with building GRP motorboats for the inland waterways, Viking Cruisers have introduced thousands of families and their friends to boating. At Birmingham, Tingdene will be showing the four berth Viking 24. As Viking specialists they offer these boats in the Highline specification as standard. This provides everything needed for the first time or experienced boat owner. Again the 24 is in stock for immediate delivery.


Banks Martin Beaulieu 30

If you prefer motoryacht-style finishes in a larger inland cruiser format Tingdene will be pleased to show you around the Banks Martin Beaulieu 30, one of the latest additions to the Tingdene Boat Sales family.

Built just down the road the road from the NEC in Kidderminster, the 30 appears much bigger than its length suggests. Spacious open plan, airy accommodation will appeal to many, while the distinctive straight stem of the bow and clean lines will catch the attention of other waterways users. The Beaulieu has a low-wash, semi-displacement hull and a choice of inboard or outboard power.

Tingdene will also be displaying an example of another Midlands built creation. The Dolfor 500 is a practical pocket open deck boat, equally capable of inland or coastal use. They've recently put one into service as a hire boat at Walton Marina which means you also have a chance to take a look at the flexible 16-footer in action..!
